Brasserie La Place @ Uptown 37

和 PY 吃的午餐
因为大家的工作时间很不一样约在九月的午餐今天才吃到Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
这餐厅也不难找就在 Uptown 37 汇丰银行的楼上
(之前是 Fajar)
Lunch appointment with PY ~
a very long over due meeting as we were supposed to meet up somewhere in September
anyway we finally meet up and she suggested this place which i have not heard of...
we were so lucky to find parking bays for our cars during the super peak lunch time at Uptown
no problem for us to locate this restaurant as it is situated right above HSBC at Uptown 37 (previously the shops were occupied by Fajar)

Gotta take two elevators up to second floor before we reached the entrance:

Cozy and very modern interior:


今天的套餐 @ RM19++
有一个汤, 主菜和雪糕
Set lunch of the day @ RM19++
comes with a soup, a choice of Plat Du Jour (dishes of the day) and ice cream
no drinks included...

four tiny slices of bread with butter:

新鲜橙汁和黄梨汁 (RM7/一杯):
Fresh orange juice and Fresh pineapple juice (RM7/each):
well... we expected them to be fresh since that was printed in the menu
however we found that the juices are fresh from the box instead of the fruit itself...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Soup of the day:
chicken broth with mushroom
very clear and light soup but full of the mushroom aroma...
we both felt very healthy ~

PY 的主菜
牛肉块很香很好吃 ~
PY's main...
Goulasch Hongrois
Beef stew in paprika sauce, served with pilaf rice and vegetables
very beautifully presented...
very dry beef stew indeed we were expecting some thing more soupy than this
anyway the beef cubes are very tasty ~

我的烤羊肩肉, 法式雜菜煲和烤马铃薯
其实要了这个都是因为想试试 ratatouille (法式雜菜煲)
不知道他们的厨师是不是一只小老鼠...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
My Epaule d'agnea Braise au Sauce Romarin
Grilled lamb shoulder with rosemary sauce and ratatouille
served with roasted potatoes
the main reason for me to choose this dish is ~ ratatouille
even since i watched the cartoon i am really curious about trying this...
wonder if they have a rat as the chef ~ Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
this is how it looks when served:

View from the other side:

我还是搞不清楚...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
不管了... 蔬菜都很可口
now... what is ratatouille?
the portion right at the bottom of the pic ?
since this dish is served with roasted potato and carrots that means the portion of mixed veggie = ratatouille ? Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
i still dunno... anyway this is flavoursome !!
the lamb is tender and juicy too...

雪糕.. 杯是冻过的:
Ice cream served in chilled glass:

anyways i m bak haha..

the rata whatever..yes i think its the mix veges haha..

Christy said...

Yup, the ratatouille is the mixed vege done in that lavish style!:D

This place seems very unique; I thought it was more of a Western fine dining but at the same time, the food seems half-oriental too:D

I like the nice interior. Didn't know old Fajar has now been converted into commercial building. Hmm...ratatouille...i think I have got a few recipe on it, yet to try though.

according to what is printed on the business card, they serve European cuisine...
the deco looks expensive but luckily the prices are not ~ ^_^

Precious Pea:

Nic (KHKL):

New Kid on the Blog:

Looks like a nice place. It should look quite romantic at night I suppose. The ice-cream looks so well-presented. Wanna visit this place!
